Default Windows will boot from CD only

I have an ASUS P5ND2 SLI Deluxe mobo with an Adaptec pci raid card running 2 SCSI hard drives. I installed XP from the CD onto the hard drive... XP booted up fine. But every time I restart or turn on my PC without the CD in the drive it wont boot up. I have boot from hard drive set first and boot from CD set second. If I only set it for boot from hard drive it wont boot.
In the SCSI bios I have the "bootable drives" box checked which should make it work. I had the same exact settings on another mobo and it worked fine. This new mobo I have doesnt allow me to boot from SCSI like the last one.
Anyone have any ideas?

Did you install the SCSI drivers when you installed XP?

No....because XP loaded its own drivers and it seemed to work except for this boot thing. should I uninstall the drivers and reinstall my drivers?
